About the non-profit

In 2017, Ethan and Ann Brennan decided to have an event in Severna Park, Maryland to raise money and awareness for Suicide Prevention. Ethan is a survivor and wanted to spread the message that "you are not alone." The event was so successful that in the first three years they raised almost $200,000 in cash and in-kind donations.

The money raised from these events allows us to award small grants and support for mental health programs in local schools. Additional funds support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Warrior Music Foundation and NAMI.
